    • Polling enhancements for quizzing - Windows, macOS, Linux, Android, iOS 
      Account owners and admins can enable advanced polling to allow meeting hosts to build advanced polls or quizzes that contain multiple question/answer types, allow for images, and automatically record answers. New question/answer types include match combinations, rank answers, and fill in the blank. This feature requires version 5.8.3 or higher and currently must be enabled by Zoom. This will be enabled for all on November 7, 2021.
    • Profile photos for in-meeting chat - Windows, macOS, Linux, Android, iOS
      In-meeting chat now displays the participants’ profile photos, just as they appear in Zoom Chat. If no image is available for a participant, the participant’s initials appear. The account owner and admins can enable this for use in the Account-level web settings, and users can also control this feature in the client settings as well.
    • Prevent display name changes when SAML mapped - Windows, macOS
      Administrators can configure SAML mapping so that the desktop client blocks SSO users from changing their display name when joining a meeting with the Join button.

      Zoom is adding additional fall and Halloween themed scenes for use in Immersive View.
    • Poll access for alternative hosts - Android

    • Non-verbal feedback enhancement: Coffee cup- Android, iOS
      The Coffee cup option, indicating you are temporarily away from the meeting, is returning to Non-verbal feedback options in the mobile apps. This non-verbal feedback option feature requires client version 5.7.3 or higher.

  • Chat features
    • Unread message badge in search results - Windows, macOS
      The search results for contacts and channels include the unread badge counts for each. For high volume users who receive a constant influx of new messages, these badge counts help to visually differentiate between contacts and channels that would otherwise all look the same.
    • Enhancements to @ mentions page - Windows, macOS
      The @ me mentions page now indicates which messages are unread.
    • Highlighted @ mentions - Windows, macOS
      When you are mentioned in a channel or multi-user chat, the message you are mentioned in will be temporarily highlighted in the conversation.
